just trying to get as many people dropped and into fedgov exchanges.
This will be a wake up call for many. I basically see it as allowing Insurance Companies the power to tax. No wonder Insurance stocks have gone up.
Seems to me that they have less than 50 employees. Self = 1.
The way I understand this is whatever “self insured” would cost the employee, the insurance companies can charge that much for dependents. IOW, nobody can afford it.
To all those people who still worship this guy, welcome to VA medical care. And I hate that because it means my treatment is going to get worse.
The IRS says that there is no requirement in “The Affordable Care Act” for family health insurance to be affordable. If that isn’t Orwellian, I don’t know what is!
“If you like your plan, you can keep it!” (Except for any of your family whom you won’t be able to afford to cover)
Here are two other important points of clarification in the proposed rule:
Companies that have a common owner (or are related) are generally combined together to determine whether they employ at least 50 full-time employees or a combination of full- and part-time workers that equals that amount, and
The final shared-responsibility rule will include an anti-abuse provision to keep companies from using temporary staffing agencies for the express purpose of evading their obligations under the health reform law.
So, this makes it 1,500 worker-hours/week, rather than "50 or more FT workers". Can't just cut hours to less than 30, and hire other part timers to take up the load, as some places had already started doing.
The street con known as “three card monte” should be renamed “three card Barry”.............

Stay healthy, folks!
